What is Peer Mediation?
Peer Mediation is a structured, orderly, confidential process where two neutral student peer mediators use communication skills and peer mediation techniques to help students in conflict identify the problem(s) they wish to resolve, communicate effectively, develop empathy for one another, and create their own solutions.
